As to being better, it has a touchscreen, it has a proper eink pearl screen (which is debatable with the bebook) and that's just for starters.
And take it easy with the rolleyes, I'm happy to discuss and debate in a positive way, but if you need to resort to sarcasm and negativity I'll stop taking part in this discussion with you.
You own a Kobo. You come and post on a thread about the new Bebook Pure, without ever seeing one and try to tell us how the Kobo is better. In your opinion a touch screen is better, personally I don't think it is having had both touchscreen and normal screen. Also, the touchscreen reduces the clarity of the E-ink screen so there is probably little difference between the Kobo and the Pure. It is certainly the clearest normal e-ink screen out of the 8 I have had.
Now if you want to discuss the Pure then fine.
If you want to just tell us how much better the Kobo is then I think I can live without that discussion.
